Technology in your Home

Children, this week, I would like you to go on a technology hunt in your home and record the different tools/devices of technology you have. You will probably be surprised to discover how much technology there is in a single room - and how in fact, technology is all around us!

You could draw an outline of your house and sketch the different rooms with the technology devices inside or you could make a list. 

 

Extension: Create your very own 'Techno House!'

Design a house full of technology - where EVERYTHING can be done using only a button on a device - you could even invent your own new devices! 

In my 'Techno House', I would love devices that can, make beds, fold washing and capture spiders!

Photography

 

In Class Two this term, the children have been fantastic at using iPads and showing their great photography skills. This week I would like you to practise these skills at home,

if possible, you could use a phone, camera or iPad.

1. Choose a challenge card (see below) and snap away! 

Don't worry if you don't have access to a camera, as you can make your own Pin-hole camera!

2. Have a go at completing the Camera Shots Sorting Activity Page (below).
